Karl Stark, an AHCJ member and Director of Content Strategy & Editor in Residence at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, is set to lead a webinar on reporting hospital finances. The session is part of a four-part series called “Follow the Money,” created by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors to help journalists tell the story of the business side of healthcare.

Stark’s work at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics focuses on encouraging LDI Fellows to write for the public. Prior to his current role, he spent over thirty years at the Philadelphia Inquirer, holding positions such as Health Editor, Business News Editor, and National/Foreign Editor. His investigative reporting on the bankrupt Allegheny health system led to the indictment of its top three executives. Stark has also been President of the Association of Health Care Journalists and is a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists.” His session on covering hospital finances is a highlight at AHCJ’s annual meeting. He is a graduate of Yale University, where he was a varsity tennis player, and also competed in skating alongside his sister Julie.

The Follow the Money series is available to journalists for free, thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation. This webinar provides journalists with valuable tools and resources to report on hospitals’ financial well-being using AHCJ’s hospitalfinances.org site.
